Re: how far to your neurologist
My neuro is 15 minutes away, and I'm still not driving YET, but I will be in a month. I wish I would have known the following info months ago....what I just found out is that if I need any services at the hospital (i.e. testing or additional cognitive therapy), my daughter will not have to drive me anymore and it has nothing to do with health insurance. The hospital will provide a free van shuttle to drive me to and from the hospital - and I don't need to be declared "disabled". I only found this out at my last EEG when the technician learned that I was walking the three miles home, as I didn't have a ride.
Sammi, perhaps you can switch over to a neurologist that has his office in a hospital near your home. If your local hospital provides a free shuttle service similiar to what I listed here then you're all set, but you have to do your homework first.
